Pyramids vs. Aliens

We looked at this film in relation to the Super Bowl ad and the monsters' appearance in the bizarre shapeshifting-reptile ad for Sobe. Well, surprise, surprise- the poster for Monsters vs. Aliens features the Transamerica Pyramid, that weird synthesis of pyramid and obelisk in San Francisco.

17, Again. And Again.

Gee, it almost looks like someone wants to implant the 17 meme into the kiddie set's collective unconscious. Disney star Zac Efron is tapped to do the job in 17 Again, which looks like any number of Twilight Zone episodes I was just thinking about. 

Barack Obama and the Masonic Martyr: Real Life

OK, so the first episode of the Obama Era for Life (the previous episode aired 12/17/08) deals with a martyred astronaut named "Bull" Ellis who just happens to be tight with the President of the United States (a fact of which we are reminded of throughout the episode).

Huh. I guess that's what they call a coincidence, no?

The Messiah Who Fell to Earth


Jim Caviezel goes from the titular lead in Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ to playing an atheist alien named Kainan (Cain, Canaan, Canis) who falls to Earth in an astonishingly phallic spaceship in Outlander. Fascinating career move, and rife with strange symbolic parallels.

Space/Gods: The Pyramid of Apollo

As we seen in regards to the Orion 17 mission, the 17 enigma extends all the way to the Moon. Mankind's first direct contact with an extraterrestrial body happened with the Apollo 11 lunar landing at 20:17 UT. And the last contact we had with the Moon was with the Apollo 17 mission (which orbited the Moon for 17 hours).

Super Ba'al XLIII Update: Running the Numbers

There are so many details swirling around us, so much data, so much symbolism that it gets to be overwhelming. We previously looked at the Templar-Vatican symbolism in the Super Bowl, but I overlooked the fact Kurt Warner's (the losing QB) jersey number is 13. (read "For Warner, Jersey No. 13 Is Emblem of Spirituality"). 

Star Dogs and Sun Gods

Man, they're continuing to work the Obama/Dogstar link. Of course, you have the usual manufactured controversy to ensure everyone pays attention.


Gary McKinnon, Cause Célèbre

Forget Mumia Abu Jamal, a new age needs a new celebrity martyr. And in this alien-haunted age, UFO hacker Gary McKinnon has become the hot new cause among the British cogniscenti. Part of it may certainly be the lingering chafe marks among the Brits from eight years of neocon bullying, but it feels like there's a subtle whisper of a paradigm shift underneath all of the shouting. 

Super Bowl Shape-Shifters


 I thought they looked familiar- this Sobe ad with the shape-shifting reptilians features characters from the upcoming DreamWorks film, Monsters vs Aliens.

Egypt, Egypt Everywhere

Hot on the heels of news of the Louvre's upcoming "Gates of Heaven" exhibition comes this new exhibit of Egyptian wall paintings. Apropos of nothing, The Times name-dropped Lara Croft in its recent article on the show...

Super Bowl XLWhatever Semiotics

Two stars, and vaguely familiar stripes...

Well, today's the day of the "Big Game." The Pittsburgh Steelers will face off against the Arizona Cardinals in Tampa. The game will be aired on NBC, the "Peacock Network."* I find it especially interesting that the game is on NBC this year, since last Sunday they aired the excruciating TV mini-series adaptation of Raymond Khoury's The Last Templar, which starred New Jersey's own Mira Sorvino (who won an Ausur® for Mighty Aphrodite).

Maybe this is part three of the story.
